Company Culture

The overall culture with my teammates was fine. We all worked together like a fine tuned machine.

Support from management

From my direct supervisor, yes. Above her, absolutely not.

Teamwork

This job constantly encouraged co workers to work together. In my job, it was necessary at times.

Freedom to work independently

We were able to do our work pretty well without constant over the shoulder supervision.

Internal Communication

We had pretty frequent town halls. The company as a whole was informed well but the specific area I was in didn't seem to get much direct, relateable information.

Gender Equality

Dumb question. Of course.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone was rated based on performance. Sex and age didn't matter.

Career Development

There was training. Opportunities were abundant for some, not so much for others. In my location they were more few and far between and therefore very difficult to move.

Overall compensation for your work

My compensation was fair. I had no issues with that.

Office / Work Environment

The workplace was usually comfortable. The company made sure to offer comfortable seating. Sometimes temperatures would be off.

Environmental Friendliness

To a fault.

Work-Life Balance

For me. the work-life balance was lacking. It was one of the reasons I left the company. I lived about 45 minutes away from the job so I spent too much time driving. I wanted a job that would offer a work from home option but the only offering they had would have been a step down.

Company Image

I like the job for the most part. The employer was great in some ways but lacking severely in others. Unfortunately, as a large company, it wasn't easy to make changes.

Job Security

My position was stable. I left by my own decision.

Handicapped Accessibility

Facilities were completely handicap accessible with automatic doors, wider security entrances for wheelchairs and an elevator.

Workplace Safety

Adequate training and security was provided.

Challenging Work

The work was quite challenging at times. It required a Pharmacy Tech certification in order to do it. Plenty of opportunity for error and, in some cases, long processes.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity, as defined by most places, was valued within the workplace. Different thoughts and ideas weren't exactly valued but not squelched.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The main improvement I would suggest, really for any company, is to find the skills of the employees and cultivate those particular skills. Train and work with those employees and put them into positions where they will not only succeed but actually want to do the job.

What I like about the company

My experience with the company overall was positive. They tried to keep their people happy. Unfortunately, all the attempts to keep people happy were on the surface. Doing events, giving away a gift or piece of candy here and there, even a bonus.

What I dislike about the company

All the experiences were shallow. Once those experiences have passed, the feeling of happiness and satisfaction went away shortly after. A bonus was nice but bonuses don't last. Where it mattered, career opportunity, this company was severely lacking, at least at my site. Every time a job came open, the competition was stiff. In some cases, the person they wanted had already been chosen but they conducted interviews to show they gave everyone opportunities. I finally got frustrated and decided I wasn't going to be able to move to another position so I decided to leave the company and find an opportunity without the glass ceiling.

Company Culture

The culture overall was good. The people worked together well. There were some broken procedures which were difficult to resolve in some cases but in all it was good.

Support from management

This is mostly true. However, when it came to growing and moving within the company, they fell short.

Teamwork

Cigna was big on pushing teamwork and honesty.

Freedom to work independently

The trust varied based on the department.

Internal Communication

We had frequent town halls. Communication of successes was good but lacked for specific departments.

Gender Equality

Cigna took great pains to push women. If anything, men were treated less fairly.

Attitude towards older colleagues

As long as the older people were able to do the job there were no issues.

Career Development

Perhaps for many. For me? no.

Overall compensation for your work

Overall compensation was an obstacle to leaving.

Office / Work Environment

Most of the time the environment was comfortable physically.

Environmental Friendliness

to a fault

Work-Life Balance

For me the work-life balance was rough. I spent so long driving to work, it added 8 hours a week in driving on top of my normal schedule. They did try to accommodate me but it was not enough.

Company Image

Overall the employer was fine. Proud? no.

Job Security

Stability wasn't the problem.

Handicapped Accessibility

All the facilities were handicap accessible.

Workplace Safety

Trainings were common to help prevent issues of all kinds at work.

Challenging Work

The work had some challenges but most of it was clear when using the procedures.

Inclusive / Diverse

They valued diversity in the workplace, in the current definition, to a fault.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make a better effort to bring opportunities to everyone, not just those in the more recognized sites.

What I like about the company

The company was good to work for overall. The pay was good enough it made it hard to leave. I was good at my job. The company liked to tell employees how much they appreciated the hard work and success. They did what they could to make employees know they

What I dislike about the company

I had 2 issues with the company. 1) the lack of opportunity for advancement and lateral movement at my location. Sure there were opportunities at other sites but my site was basically Gilligan's island when it came to getting decent opportunities. 2) Unle

Company Culture

Pharmacists in the Specialty Pharmacy team were treated very poorly. The supervisor made it known that your job was on the line if you did anything she didn't like. It made for a company culture where fear of losing your job and intimidation by supervisor and manager were used to "keep you in line."

Support from management

Supervisor was completely new to specialty pharmacy and didn't have one clue how to do the job we did. She only knew how to monitor and keep a thumb on the employees and govern by threats and intimidation.

Teamwork

The team managed to get the job done despite the roadblocks thrown up by management. Management made an already difficult job even more difficult and stressful by their poor leadership.

Freedom to work independently

No freedom to work independently at all. Compliance to the given schedule was of supreme importance. Nothing, not even providing excellent customer service, was an excuse to vary from the given schedule. And this also became a firable offence under the current supervisor.

Internal Communication

Management routinely told staff to do one thing and then bark at the team for doing what they said and not following the given schedule.

Gender Equality

Even transgendered people found a home there.

Attitude towards older colleagues

No age discrimination whatsoever.

Career Development

Company will re-imburse for certs when tests are passed.

Office / Work Environment

Just about any manner of dress and cubicle decor was tolerated.

Work-Life Balance

I have to give the company a high mark for this due to the flexibility of the schedule. If you worked the weekend shift, however, flexibility of schedule did not apply to you.

Challenging Work

Not in a good way.

Inclusive / Diverse

All races, creeds, cultures, and sexual orientations were represented in the staff.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change in management culture.

What I like about the company

Shift flexibility.
